Pence says US right to abortion consigned to ‘ash heap of history’

Former US vice president Mike Pence on Friday said the right to abortion had been “consigned to the ash heap of history” as he hailed a Supreme Court ruling that ended 50 years of constitutional protections.

“By returning the question of abortion to the states and the people, this Supreme Court has righted a historic wrong, and reaffirmed the right of the American people to govern themselves,” said Pence, a Republican potential presidential candidate and leading anti-abortion campaigner.

Agence France-Presse (AFP) is a French state-owned international news agency based in Paris. It is the world's oldest news agency, having been founded in 1835 as Havas.
